Meet the owner

Scott Kirkham and Kathryn Statton
We are Scott Kirkham and Kathryn Statton and we live in Cornwall in the UK. We have 2 grown up children, Reece and Bethany. Scott is an engineering technical author and Kathryn is a teaching assistant at a local special needs school. We also own a busy leathergoods shop in a nearby seaside town.
We have always wanted to own a home overseas and we were bowled over by the by the range of choice that Orlando has to offer: world-class attractions, shopping and dining combined with relaxed outdoor living, natural beauty and easy access to the ocean. So we embarked on our search for our perfect holiday home in the sunshine state.
And we found it! ‘Bella Vista’ enjoys a quiet open aspect both south and east facing while backing onto conservation wetland which enables us to enjoy sweeping countryside views and ever-changing wildlife – and we can drive to the Disney Arch in less than 15 minutes!
We are looking forward to spending time in our lovely villa and the surrounding area and the children are, naturally, looking forward to being here with their friends etc.
We are always delighted to answer any questions you may have: we have high standards and know how important it is to get your holiday accommodation just right. Our Management Company is very established in the area with a wealth of experience and very high standards in terms of customer service and property maintenance, so we can relax in the knowledge that our guests are in expert hands while they enjoy their vacation.

Located on an exclusive gated community, Bella Vista boasts one of the best aspects on the entire estate, with breathtaking views of wetlands and wildlife conservation. We guarantee that you will never grow tired of watching the majesty and grandeur that nature has provided as the awe inspiring backdrop to your Florida vacation.

Whilst nature plays its part, we as owners of Bella Vista have gone the extra mile too, in order to offer our guests a simply stunning vacation home with all the luxury and convenience you would expect from a grand, upmarket hotel.

We can’t wait for you to discover just how special our home is, and accordingly, we invite you to sit back, relax and read on …

Oversized Private Pool & Spa With Shady Lanai

If your idea of heaven is laid back outdoor living, soaking up the glorious Florida sunshine and enjoying the delights of your own private pool and spa, then Bella Vista will tick all of these boxes and afford you the vacation experience of a lifetime.

The villa already had the largest deck offered by the property developer and then it was extended further to create a superb outdoor environment for you to relish and enjoy throughout your stay.

Our gloriously comfortable, padded loungers and chairs are ideal for those lazy days when topping up your tan is a priority.

The beautiful sun drenched, tiled pool (28ft by 14ft) is maintained to the highest standards by a specialist pool company and features underwater lighting in order to create a soothing ambiance or party atmosphere as the sun sets on yet another fun filled Florida day.

Adjacent to the pool is our magnificent 7ft spa bath ~ the ideal way to sooth those tired feet and aching muscles after a busy day in search of that elusive “Mouse” !

For those that prefer a little shade or just a momentary respite from the wonderful tropical sunshine, our lanai (or outdoor lounge area) with typical Floridian ceiling fan will provide a cooling haven of calm and tranquillity, whilst still allowing you to watch and join in the fun with the rest of the family in and around the glistening pool. In addition, our fantastic bathroom and poolside shower provides a great changing area and affords you all the facilities you could ever need right there on the deck.

And, as if all that wasn’t enough, we proudly boast one of the most spectacular and stunning natural wildlife and conservation habitat views in the whole of the Disney area. A truly awe inspiring backdrop of ever changing seasons and tropical animal discovery.

Fabulous Games Room

Vacations are all about having fun and maybe doing things that ordinarily you don’t get the chance to do in everyday life. So imagine the excitement of discovering your very own bespoke games room right there in your vacation home.

Then add to that excitement by making the centrepiece of that room a full size genuine Olhausen professional pool table ~ one of the very best tables available anywhere in the world. Still not enough? Ok, how about the high quality 7 ft air hockey?

We also have a great Foosball table!

Now let’s throw in a table, some chairs and a luxury carpet to make this a great place to hang out and chill whenever the urge for a little friendly rivalry rears its head! Kids of all ages love this room, and parents love the fact that they can enjoy some well earned peace and quiet. knowing that their youngsters whilst being entertained, are all completely safe and sound.

Downstairs Areas

1st Lounge Room

Our 1st lounge room downstairs is a particular favourite with our guests, who always comment on the light airy feel and the grand scale of everything. It really does have that “Wow” factor and that old adage about everything in America being “bigger” is certainly the case here! Whether it’s the magnificent open plan staircase which sweeps away to the side of you, the sumptuous furniture or the simply massive 65in 4K TV, everything is on a suitably upscale and luxurious level that is bound to impress.

Master Bedroom Suite 1

We believe that all our guests will appreciate the tasteful décor and quality furnishing and fittings provided to ensure your relaxation and comfort. Secluded from the rest of the house this master suite affords the best in both privacy and stunning conservation views directly from the bedroom window.

Featuring a sumptuous king-size bed, a remote controlled 27 inch cable TV and access to you own private bathroom, this room, complete with its own entrance to the pool deck, is a great place to relax and enjoy a little quiet time away from the rest of your party.

The master bathroom features a stunning walk-in shower cubicle, (which meets all current disabled codes), a separate tub and two wash basins with vanity. In addition a separate WC and extensive closet which features a complimentary safe is located in the private corridor which leads from the bedroom to the bathroom.

Dining & Kitchen

Like the rest of the interior of Bella Vista, our dining room is tastefully furnished and accommodates a large dining table and chairs. Located adjacent to the kitchen it has the added advantage of enjoying our spectacular countryside views. A casual breakfast bar separates the dining room from the kitchen, and there are bar stools for those who prefer informal dining or just a coffee and maybe a fresh baked muffin “on the run”.

The breakfast bar is a great way of resolving that issue of maybe feeling a little isolated in the kitchen if you are the designated cook, since it is both easy and comfortable for your family and friends to join you on the bar stools, at a safe distance, whilst you are creating culinary magic! As you would expect in a home of such premier quality, all those top of the range appliances are just waiting to make your food prep and gourmet skills a complete breeze.

Other Downstairs Features & Facilities

• A convenient half bathroom which features a WC and hand basin with vanity

• A utility room complete with a heavy-duty washing machine, tumble drier, iron & ironing board.

Safety & Security

At Bella Vista we take your safety and security extremely seriously. It is easy to let your guard slip when on vacation, but because we know you want to relax, we’ve taken care of the major security aspects for you and your family. To that end, the house has an emergency lighting system in the event of power failure, fire extinguishers on both floors and all doors leading to the pool and deck are alarmed in order to give parents peace of mind by stopping youngsters and toddlers from entering the pool area unnoticed.

Upstairs Areas

2nd Lounge Room

Without a shadow of a doubt, you will simply adore this wonderful upper lounge area. Built to a truly visionary design, we invite you to chill out and relax as you sink into the super plush furnishings and look out from on high, over the stunning conservation and natural wetlands beyond.

But wait… it gets so much better! Our incredible observation balcony means that you can enjoy the soft gentle breeze, take advantage of the weatherproof furniture and simply marvel at the views, which range from the majesty of nature’s own conservation, to spectacular sunrises right through to nightly jaw dropping Disney fireworks!

However, when you eventually pull yourself away and do go back inside there is our high speed wi-fi router, you can bring your own laptop/s and enjoy the freedom to surf wherever you like around the house!

Master Bedroom Suite 2

The second of our spectacular private master bedroom suites is accessed by its own gallery walkway and occupies the whole of the south side of the house upstairs. Make no mistake, we are talking about a huge space here! It is furnished to our normal exacting standards complete with king size bed and remote controlled private TV. Here you will also discover the largest walk-in closet in the house and a private bathroom with WC, basin and walk-in shower. This spectacular suite is guaranteed to wrap you in a haven of luxury and indulgence.

Central Bedroom & Bathroom

Situated away from all other bedrooms, this twin-bedded room is thoughtfully presented with nightstands, chest of drawers, mirror, lamps, a large closet and of course, a remote controlled TV. The adjacent bathroom provides a shower/bath combo, twin basins and WC.

Front twin Bedroom

Located upstairs at the front of the house, this twin-bedded room is always the first choice for the young and young-at-heart. Newly furnished , what better room to come home to after a day at one of the Disney parks interacting with the real characters? You can even watch the Disney channel on your own private TV. Features PlayStation 3. Kids will love it !

Some Guests Comments

"You picked well with West Haven – we have been going to Florida for probably 20 years (30 if I include my time as a teenager with my parents) and have stayed all over in Orlando, but West Haven is in our opinion the best location. Cheers Peter"

"One week has past by since our visit at the Abbey, and we are quite nostalgic because it was GREAT!!!

You guys have a beautiful house, and we all appreciated the pool, the view and the close to everything we needed...

As well, if any Canadian or Quebec residents want reassurance, please forward our name and e-mail address as a reference,

It will be my pleasure to share my experience with them.

On behalf of our party a BIG thanks

Hope to rent from you again...sometime soon. Best regards Russell"

Great time had by the whole family

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Our family had a brilliant time staying in the Abbey at West Haven. This was our second time staying in the villa with the first being over 10 years ago and it didn’t disappoint. Although a number of the key features (bathrooms, kitchen appliances etc) are the originals the villa was spotlessly clean, it had a lovely fresh smell and it had everything we needed and more. We especially loved the swimming pool and games room - I would recommend anyone to stay in this villa - they will not be disappointed!

Fabulous spacious sunshine villa!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We had a fabulous stay at Kath and Scott’s villa. The villa is in a fantastic location, 5 minutes drive from Champions Gate for supermarket and local food outlets and very close to the all important Disney! The development is very peaceful and private with lovely views of the conservation area directly in front of the pool. We had daily visits from three Sandhills Cranes peering in at us whilst we ate breakfast, used the pool. The villa is huge and perfectly laid out that if you were staying as a large family group, that everyone would have their own space. We really appreciated the many pieces of baby equipment from stair gates, to strollers and travel cot that were in the villa for us to use. Kath and Scott were wonderful to deal with from start to finish and I wouldn’t hesitate to rebook - thanks Kath and Scott!

Great villa & location

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

This is a home from home - great location in a quiet area but very close to all things Disney. The villa was well equipped with everything you need - we even manged a family lunch for 12 on NY Day!
The pool was well used and was just beautiful of a morning to be sat out on the patio with the view of the pond - I was often joined by the resident cranes.
Champions Gate is a 5 minute car drive away with a great Publix food store and eateries. There's also 2 cracking golf courses, very reasonably priced and well kept.
The villa gave us the space we needed in a great location. Would thoroughly recommend a stay

The Villa is like a home from home with 5 lovely bedrooms all having a bathroom each excellent for us all. Was lovely to come back to the Villa after a busy day to relax together watch a movie or a dip into the pool or hot tub or even a game of pool in the lovely games room, This villa has everything you need and more for a family holiday.
Would not stay anywhere else now when we visit orlando again truly been spoilt staying here.

Family holiday

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Myself, my husband and 4 children stayed for 2 weeks over Easter in this lovely large property. It was so spacious and now we’re home our house seems so small! My daughter especially loved the pool and was used everyday by us all. Not being over looked at the back is an extra plus! You feel very secure in the area which is very peaceful but will need transport as everything is driving distance away. Only a couple of minutes in the car though and you will find plenty of amenities. You have everything you need at the property with 5 bedrooms & 5 toilets. Plenty of tvs which we didn’t really watch as had so much to do. All in all a pleasant stay with plenty of room for all and would definitely use again if staying in Orlando. Thanks again to Kath & Scott.

We were a group of 7 from Canada. We wanted a secure area with built-in ammenities such as pool, jacuzzi and gas grill. This property offered all of our requirements. It was a very secure neighbourhood (gated community) The pool was large, clean and heated as per our request. Jacuzzi tub included along with a four burner gas grill at no extra charge. Great WiFi and cable TV. This is a very spacious home with a natural area bordering the rear of the property which added to your privacy, peace and quiet. Shopping was close by for all our needs along with many restaraunts. For those planning to visit area attractions such as Disney, Universal Studios etc., this home is conveniently located. The management company was very prompt to deal with any issue that came up during our stay. Above all else, the owners, Kathryn and Scott were tremendous to deal with and very helpful during the entire booking and rental process. Thank you.

Easter Break

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

Had a fantastic Easter Break at Bella Vista villa in the high quality and gated Abbey complex at Champions Gate.
The villa was spacious very clean and well equipped for all your needs,the lounge,dining space and kitchen all open plan. Large TV with up to date cable and very fast Wi-Fi, five bedrooms three with en-suites and two more family bathrooms all very spacious and all with cable TV, the grandchildren loved the games room, you got a pool table and air hockey table. The pool was the best part for me bigger than normal with a hot tub very clean and well maintained and used every day by all.
The pool deck is large and has a large under cover lanai area which is all screened and not over looked,perfect for sun bathing also very clean.
Overall it the best Villa we have stayed in and we have stayed in a few over the past twenty years.
Thank you Scott and Kath, we are very pleased that we chose to stay at Bella Vista and will stay again next time in Orlando.

We were a party of seven adults for half our stay and then just two of us for the remainder. The villa was lovely with lights on to welcome us. It has three en-suite bathrooms and a family bathroom so great facilities. The living space was good and the site itself superb - overlooking water and well maintained grassed areas and not overlooked at all. Pool and covered outside space were a great bonus in the hot Florida weather.The villa location is wonderful with many restaurants just five minutes away at the very smart Champions Gate complex. Publix supermarket is also located there. Disney is twenty minutes away with no traffic issues on I4, even when it is busy it’s only a couple of exits to Disney so you miss all the Orlando traffic. Thanks Scott and Kath - we hope to be back soon!

Bella Vista - A fine place to stay as the name suggests

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We are a family party of six who have just returned from a relaxing break at the Bella Vista Villa on the high quality and gated Abbey area within the established and sought after West Haven development. Over some twenty years we have stayed in many villas but this is the best in several ways. It is a spacious, light and airy five bedroom villa that is well appointed with excellent views over the natural wetlands. It is well screened and not overlooked. The pool deck is large and has generous under cover lanai areas. The unobstructed view from the pool deck and upper balcony at sunrise is truly glorious. The proximity to the main roads for access to the theme parks is excellent. Nearby Champions Gate is also great for shopping and eating out. The owners Kath and Scott are helpful and knowledgeable and they are well supported by their local property managers. We were very pleased that we chose to stay at Bella Vista.

Just returned from a wonderful holiday at Bella Vista at West Haven.. The house met our needs to perfection. We were a fairly large family gathering of 2 adults + our two offspring and their respective families (including teenage and toddlers/young children grandchildren. The games room provided good entertainment for all and the swimming pool/hot tub were put to good use! Orlando Airport/Disney Resorts/premium shopping outlets all within 20 minutes drive - perfect location!

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

This was a family holiday, 6 adults and 4 under 5s. The accommodation was ideal for our group and the location is perfect. The pool was a welcome feature, just a pity that the attractions of Orlando cut down the time we spent in the pool.
The outlook from the villa was very different from the usual row of villas, the view was of a nature reserve and very limited impact from neighbouring villas. We even had our resident cranes which came to visit regularly In addition to the red cardinals that were ever present.
Any future visit to Orlando will definitely be staying at Bella Vista.

Our perfect holiday at Bella Vista

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

What a great holiday we just had made perfect by our 3 week stay in Bella Vista. One of our main criteria was to have plenty of bathrooms/showers, great after we have been in pool/spa or those early morning starts on park days and all want showers etc at the same time, no problem, plenty to go round. We had the pool heated, a must for those chilly February evenings, a nice touch too with the underwater lights that change colour. There is even a toilet in the pool area. A well equipped games room including pool, air hockey and foosball ,great fun. There is a balcony upstairs which overlooks the pool and open field to the rear of the villa, so your not overlooked. This was great to watch the hot air balloons getting airborne from the nearby base at sunrise. None of our party were brave enough to have a ride. The villa is in a quiet gated community which gives you that safe feeling. The bedrooms were spacious with large comfortable beds, which made for a good nights sleep. The lights had been put on for us as we arrived in the dark, a nice welcome touch. There was note when to put the bins out, even that was done for us each week. We would like to thank Claire and David for sharing their fantastic villa with us, everything we wanted and more. Looking forward to the next time now. Thank you.

Great Villa for our extended family

star_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_ratestar_rate 5.0 / 5

We stayed at Bella Vista as an extended family, made up of our four daughters, their two husbands and our first grandchild. Having visited Orlando several times before we had a very good idea of what we wanted to do with our valuable time and Bella Vista was exceptionally well located to allow us to quickly and easily reach the huge number of different places we wanted to visit. It was very reassuring to be inside a gated community, which was easy to enter and leave and well connected to the major roads. We loved everything about the villa itself, especially the light and bright dining area which we used for our family breakfasts and the wonderfully refreshing pool ... even if we were out of the house so much we only got to use it in the mornings and late evenings. The rooms are all spacious and comfortable and we appreciated having a green expanse out of the back of the house to further build the holiday atmosphere. A good choice!

Had a lovely stay in this villa with 8 others.
The villas was clean and tidy on arrival and the pool was a joy for the kids.
The villa had everything you could ask for.
We were locked out one night and the owners and Terry the maintenance guy could not have been more helpful.
My brother in law is staying here in 2017 and we hope to stay here in 2018 when we come back to Florida.

2 weeks in Orlando

We have stayed in a number of villas in the Orlando area and I can say that this was one of the best in terms of facilities and location. Great pool area and enough space for everyone in our party (5 adults and 2 pre school children) to get away from it all when quite time was required. We did not make full use of the pool table / air hockey in the games room but these facilities would be a great bonus for families with older children. Overall highly recommended as a base for visiting the parks and as a quiet get away for days away from the parks.

Fantastic Villa

An amazing family holiday staying in this huge villa. The entire family were delighted with the accommodation and the location was ideal for all our adventures, not just to Disney and Universal but also for travelling around, shopping and sightseeing. The children loved the pool and the adults loved the Jacuzzi! This very well maintained villa was the perfect place to unwind after a busy day and was also great for taking a day out and chilling in the Florida sunshine. We were all very sad to leave and will definitely be back in the future. I would thoroughly recommend David and Claire's villa to any potential holiday-maker.
